We occasionally go to Kinkaid but spend more time on the Kaskaskia River between New Athens and the Mississippi River.

Usually not much floating on the Kaskaskia. This year's flooding has been an exception, but everything is slowly clearing out. We like to cruise alot and on lakes like Rend and Kinkaid, there is only so much room for that. The Kaskaskia is basically just a long narrow lake. Lots of smooth water for watersports and no wake zones to anchor out and enjoy the water. I do prefer Alton Pool on the Mississippi, more miles to cruise, beaches to pull up on, and many restaurants on the water. More to do and see.

Tom & Jo,

Do you happen to know when about they do the drag boat racing on the Kaskaskia? My son and I watched a TV special on the Geico offshore racing boat this week and now he's all amped to go and watch a boat race. Thanks!
